road running (long run) 2:10:00  20.0 mi (6:30 / mi) +118m 6:23 / mi
shoes: Adidas Boston
Specific Endurance: 32km @ 6'30''/mile Pace
Still had some aching hamstrings/glutes yesterday if I am honest form the bloody Kettlebell session. Won't be doing split squats and lunges before the marathon!
I can't really do these runs on a Saturday with work etc early in the morning.
Good night routine, morning routine but waited a little longer than i wanted because it was snowing again.
The run started off freezing but soon warmed up, very blustery for sections, some rain, sleet, sunshine.....typical February in N.Wales.
Felt pretty good at 6:30 pace and the first hour went without issue, it was my legs that started to tire before fitness this time with the doms from the other day coming in sooner rather than later which just meant I had to concentrate A LOT in the last 30 minutes.
Maybe I am over analysing but it felt like my stride just wasn't that smooth with knee lift etc but that was OK, I knew I could finish the run at the same pace but just had to work pretty hard.
Happy now that even if the marathon goes completely wrong I am confident that we have made good progress.
